Can an IPv6 address be spoofed?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi

Yes. In most cases the same type of attacks can be done in an IPv6 network like in an IPv4 network. Sometimes the tools are a little different. So spoofing can be done with IPv6 and can even be a little more complicated to detect/identify, because an IPv6 interface usually has multiple addresses.
